I was looking into this bug, and it looks like not feasible at this timeframe,
because libgnomeprint parses TrueType fonts with their own library to embed the
outline into PostScript. so if we are trying to support the synthetic
emboldening in libgnomeprint, need to implement similar things in their own
TrueType font library.
